Hi my name is ***** ***** am here to assist you.

The cylinder head will have to come off to investigate.

Possible head gasket, damaged valves or piston failure.

Unfortunatly you wont know until stripped.

Please keep me informed.

Ask the garage to take the head off but dont do anything else till you know the problem.
